A solid 9
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: This is a very well kept course with old cottonwood trees that shape lines on several holes.
This course offers multiple tees: red, white, and blue so mixing it up with different looks helps you work on your overall game.
There is a pond that can be thrown over from tee #4 so a small amount of water threat is present.
This is a place that can satisfy a beginner and a seasoned player as well.
There are other amenities in this park as well, restrooms, playground, etc.
Cons: A couple of holes throw across the roads that lead into and out of the park. You might have to wait a few minutes before throwing.
Some of the tee markers have been uprooted, and don't offer a distance on them.
There aren't any benches or trash cans but the course was litter free so thats a good thing.
Some of the numbers on the baskets have faded so the first time player might get confused without the map.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a pretty solid course in a nice small town park. It was nice to see a course use the available trees in the park to help define lines like they did here. If you are passing through the area give this course a play, I think you will like what you find.

My home course & where I got started playing

Pros: Great 9 hole course! Lots of room to shape shots on most holes, some holes are a little more technical requiring a good balance of distance and accuracy.
Some signature holes are #3(white, par 5) GPS measured it being 666 feet long with about the last 75 feet, an uphill tunnel shot.
#4(white) This is the only water hazard on the course, with a good risk/reward option. Go long and knock off a stroke or take the short way and stay dry.
#6(white par 5) With the overgrown creek on the left side, the road in the middle and a tight window before the dog-leg, this one will put you to the test. After turning the corner there's a row of low, bushy trees to contend with. Might be a roller or an overhead shot unless you can get past the tree row.
Great maintenance on the park. Grass has always been cut, hardly any trash.
Bathrooms are by the south playground equipment(not sure if locked or not)
Like most of the courses around this area, you will probably have the course to yourself.
Grass tee pads are not worn down at all.
Cons: #8(red)goes right over the playground/park shelter parking strip. Can be difficult with a lot of vehicles parked there.
New parking area has enough room for 2-3 vehicles. I think you can park parallel on the road without problems.
Need to put a course map/score card box back on hole #1, like the old layout used to have.
Other Thoughts: There's room for 9 more in this park. Would be nice to have an 18 but not sure when or if it'll happen, would also like to see the creek come into play a bit more. Teeing off from dirt isn't bad but would be nice to see some concrete pads for this course. I can already see a few trees that might need to be trimmed in the next 5 years or so but for now, all is well.
Mosquitoes can be very large and plentiful in the warmer months. LOTS of bug repellent.
If you launch one over the creek by accident there is a bridge back to the east of tee 6, otherwise the water isn't very deep and mostly clear. The pond however, is VERY deep and dark. God only knows whats at the bottom of that water hazard.
Out of all the 9 hole courses in the NorCenKan/SouthCenNeb area, this one is one of the best in terms of play quality/difficulty. It's a course where you have to bring controlled distance and good shot placement.

Sad, needs alot!
Pros: Good Distance shots
Not too open, not too wooded
Well kept grass
Really nice park for the kids
Cons: Where do I start...
Hole 1 white tee box missing
Hole 3, 6, 9 have little room at tee box
Hole 4 missing blue tee post
Hole 6 missing basket
Hole 7 and 8 missing all together, no tees no baskets!
Hole 9 missing blue tee.
Some of the tees had yellow 2X4s marking throwing lines, but not all of them.
Only one hole with elevation change.
Other Thoughts: All and all nice lay out, but too much missing. Be it vandals or wind, it was disappointing to not have at least baskets for 7 and 8.

Diamond in the Rough? FO SHO!
Pros: This is a gem of a course. The park is kept up very nice and there are some great holes. The longs tees are a real treat! There are lots of trees, a pond, and a creek. There is some slight elevation, but not much. Each grass tee pad has it's own sign and they do have grass. ;) Even though you could see pin on most of the holes from the tee, there are plenty of great obstacles to keep you thinking of multiple ways to play the holes. The scorecards and message board were really helpful as they have a map on them too. Navigating the course was fairly easy. The basket on #3 and blue tee on #4 are tough to find. You need to go in toward the woods just left of the pond.
Cons: There is about a 1/4-mile walk back to #1 from #9, but it isn't too bad since the park looks so nice. I did not see a restroom or too many trashcans, but it is so clean and has camping, so they must be there somewhere. I played in late Sept. and the mosquitoes were fierce!
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor is huge! I really enjoyed this course and wish it wasn't one of the furthest from my hotel on this trip. They have a WWII tank in the park and it would have been cool to put a basket on it or hanging from it somewhere. ;) If this course were near my home I would play it often. This was the diamond in the rough I was hoping to see on this trip.
